Okay, so here it is Wednesday. I have the day off. Good. I slept through most of yesterday getting up just to give the dogs their toys. The toy of the hour was not the 6 foot snake with 12 squeakers. Nope. Nothing could compare to the red, naked woodpecker that honked... that's right, a woodpecker that honks.
Both dogs wanted it. When I told Seig I'd only bought one he gave me a very sad look.
And then turned away in disdain.
They do switch off, he'll have it for a while, and then Lily will have it for a while, and at some point one of them will chew off the nose or the toes and it will not longer honk and they'll move onto something else.
Today will be an interesting day for the Stock Market. Funny how the Idiot Jerk is sill blaming the Fed. Glance at any financial page and you'll see most reporting takes the Fed rate hikes into account, but what's really creating the havoc is the Idiot Jerk and his administration. Mattis leaves and he wants to give the job to someone with no military experience and only 2 years at the the Pentagon... oh, but he used to work for Boeing (I think). And then yesterday he started telling people they should buy 'the dip.' You can bet Mnuchin is, that's how he made his money, buying stocks after the 'W' crash.
And Gallup did give the Idiot Jerk some good news. He has the most stable approval rating of any president to date. With all the other presidents, their approval rating goes up and down, they do something the country likes, it goes up, they do something Americans don't like, it goes down. The Idiot Jerk's approval rating doesn't do that. Nope. It has never gone above 45% or below 35%. In fact, his approval rating seems to be most comfortable at around 39%. That % includes the 29% of Americans registered Republican, and 10% of everybody else registered to vote. This is not a good thing if he's planning on trying to get re-elected.
